Well-being – mental health
In both my personal and professional life, I have a deep interest in well-being and mental health. I strive to de-stigmatize seeking help from a psychologist and create a supportive environment where everyone feels comfortable discussing their mental health. At the faculty of social sciences and in my research group, I organize activities, participate in on-boarding and was elected well-being ambassador. I believe in the importance of finding one’s work-life balance and strive to promote a caring environment for others to achieve their full potential while maintaining a healthy social and personal life. Because academia can be a demanding and competitive environment, I find it especially important to strike a balance between professional success and personal well-being.

I co-organize a weekly writing group at the Faculty of Social Sciences. Writing is a big part of the PhD, but it can be a lonely process. Writing together helps us find motivation, write regularly, get feedback and meet new colleagues.
